A new mobile application designed to help users overcome ag workforce shortages is now available. AgButler, designed by Laclede County native Kevin Johansen, aims to connect farmers and potential workers in real time. 

The app focuses on livestock, crops, transportation and construction jobs where users can post employment needs and workers can share their farm job experience. The technology is similar to ride-share apps where farmers, ranchers and/or agribusinesses connect with laborers, according to the AgButler website www.agbutlerapp.org. Filters can be applied based on location, ratings, work experience and availability. A secure payment structure is featured inside app.

AgButler already has hefty credentials from competitions it has placed in during the development phase this year. The app was a semifinalist for Farm Bureau Ag Innovation Challenge landing $7,500 prize money and a grant with the Missouri Agriculture and Small Business Development Authority. AgButler also won People’s Choice in the Ag Tech Innovation Competition at the Iowa Power Farming Show. 

The AgButler app is available from the Google or Apple stores or create an account at www.agbutlerapp.org
